IFAD’s Twelfth Replenishment

Ending extreme poverty and hunger will be difficult without more investment and more innovative approaches. See how IFAD is building the resilience of the world’s most vulnerable people.

IFAD and the SDGs

The 2030 Agenda is a global commitment to “leave no one behind” in realizing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Nowhere is the challenge of leaving no one behind more salient than in rural areas.

Responding to COVID-19

The outbreak of COVID-19 has rapidly spread across the world, profoundly disrupting the fundamental activities that bring the global community together, including agriculture – and endangering all those who depend on it as their livelihood.

Transforming food systems for all

A food system includes all the aspects of feeding and nourishing people: growing, harvesting, packaging, processing, transporting, marketing and consuming food. It encompasses all the interactions between people and the natural world – land, water, the climate, etc. – and the natural world’s effects on human health and nutrition.
